Khabarovsk Tours & Add-ons
Khabarovsk is a little visited but important city on the original Trans-Siberian railway route between Irkutsk and Vladivostok. Located on the Amur River and very close to the Chinese border the city has thrived on trade with China in recent decades and makes for a nice stop in the summer months for those on a more in-depth Trans-Siberian adventure.
